    Jedi Research Droid Report!
    [Pete | 07/07/05]

         The Jedi Temple on Coruscant may be in ruins but the Jedi Research Droid keeps digging up information from time to time. We don't know if it is a system malfunction but he insists on telling us that later this year we will be getting a Wedge Antilles figure on an OTC style card. He also insists (and this could be because he is a biased machine) that this will not be for sale at you local TRU, but that you will find this figure on-line. As you know, this information is coming from a battle worn Jedi Research Droid and is not official until Hasbro says it is...
